DANCING AT THE LUGHNASA

Five sisters live out their lives in rural Ireland in the 1930s, hoping beyond hope for events which will free them from their domestic solitude. Brian Friel’s play, which was a resounding success at the National Theatre, London’s West End and on Broadway, New York in the 1990s, is both magical and tragic as the sisters aspire to a happiness they will never achieve.
The play takes place around the Celtic festival of Lughnasa which marks a bitter harvest for the sisters and their frail elder brother who has returned from life as a missionary in Africa.
